The Lady Govs (1-12) took advantage of three Indiana errors and two walks in the second inning to get out to a 5-0 lead, with Rikki Arkansas picking up a RBI on a bases-loaded walk and Chandler Groves driving in a run with a sacrifice fly.

But Indiana (4-16) answered with five runs of their own in the bottom of the inning – highlighted by a three-run homer by Mena Fulton.

The Hoosiers would take the lead for good in the bottom of the third inning, by scoring three runs, and push their advantage to 9-5 with a single run in the fourth.

Austin Peay would cut into the deficit with solo home runs from Niya Sparks and Christiana Gable – in the fifth and sixth innings respectively – to make it 9-7.

But that would be as close as the Lady Govs would get, with Indiana adding on a final run in the bottom of the sixth inning for the 10-7 final.

Vinchenza DiBenedetto would lead the Lady Govs with two hits, both doubles, while Allie Blackwood had the other APSU hit.

In the nightcap, Austin Peay would see Kennesaw State (12-6) score in each of the first four innings to take an 8-0 lead.

The Lady Govs would score their two runs in the top of the fifth inning on a two-run homer by Laurel Burroughs, which also scored Courtney Brower – who had reached on an error.

Burroughs would lead the Lady Govs with a 2-for-3 effort at the plate, while Sparks recorded her first triple of the year. DiBenedetto, Arkansas and Alexis Hill also had hits for Austin Peay.
